Production of this green, renewable diesel will bring new jobs to the area, as well as contributing to Ohio’s cleaner, greener future. Facilities will be scaled to produce more than 10 million gallons annually of renewable biodiesel, while creating more than 50 new jobs for Columbus.

These two businesses will reside in more than 20,000 square feet located at 31 Merritt Street. The Columbus production plant, offices and warehouse location was chosen for its proximity to Ohio’s railways and interstate highways.

Clean Air Biodiesel plans to commence operations in the fall of 2021. Biodiesel is a renewable, biodegradable fuel manufactured from virgin vegetable oils, animal fats or recycled restaurant oils. Biodiesel meets both the biomass-based diesel and overall advanced biofuel requirement of the federal government’s Renewable Fuel Standard.

“We’re actively seeking out and engaging with feedstock suppliers, and other vendors, as well as planning an oil reclamation project for restaurants and other companies with waste vegetable oil in the greater Columbus area,” reports Burke, “our production process makes renewable diesel chemically identical to petroleum diesel with significant improvements in environmental performancedue to its drop in carbon emissions.”

“When considering the environmental benefits and performance enhancements of renewable diesel,” he continued. “The creation of these two new organizations is a long-term win, for not only the companies involved, but also for Ohio consumers and our environment. Demand for this greener fuel product in North America is expected to increase from 1 Billion gallons to 2.4 Billion gallons annuallyby 2025.”
